Uche: ehnn.. You fit help me with fifty naira, after I run around I go give you back the money.
Onyema: you dey always run around when money matter don enter, I no understand you oohh!
Ugochukwu and I went inside, I glanced back while we were walking on the hallway and saw Onyema pulling out fifty naira currency from his pocket and handing it over to his older brother.
I unlocked the door and pushed it wide open for both of us, Ugochukwu used that his dirty shoe and stepped in. I caught his leg and refused to let go.
Ugochukwu: why you dey hold my leg na?

Ugochukwu: so, the foot-mat cost pass my twenty thousand naira shoe?
Me: you dey find my mouth, I go throw you outside lock this door.
Ugochukwu: as if say you fit do am, my pity you before you go start to shed tears like tata.
He stepped backward and removed his shoe outside the room, I sat on my bed and my phone started ringing.
I picked my phone and I saw Veronica as the caller I.D, hope say no be that old man dey call again.
I picked the call and kept quiet waiting for the caller to speak first.

We went on and on discussing a lot of things, I felt like not disconnecting the call. That babe get big mouth I swear, and I love her flow.
I ended the call and saw Ugochukwu talking to someone on the phone, he ended his call also and looked at me.
Ugochukwu: them dey park now.
Me: make we dey go.
We both got up and went out of the room, I was busy locking the door when Ugochukwu called my attention.
Ugochukwu: na black shoe I drop here, how manage em turn to brown shoe?
I dropped my shoe I held in my hand on the floor and chuk my legs inside.
Ugochukwu: this thing no be my shoe, I know the color I carry come.

Caleb ran inside the passage flying pass us calling Jojo.
Caleb: shouting Jojo, she don pass.
Jojo’s voice: who?
Jojo ran out of nowhere and ran pass us wearing his shirt as his hands worked frantically to put that on.
Ugochukwu managed the shoe and we went out of the yard to see Jojo getting ready to approach one fair girl like that.
Jojo: pawpaw, how far na?

Jojo: my call you red toto, because as you fair like this. Your toto no go fit help but to red like tomatoes.

We entered inside the car and drove to the car park, human beings were just walking front and back. Back and front, anywhere their belle face.
Me: where them dey na?
Ugochukwu: make I call them.
Ugochukwu dialed a number and one Igbo song started singing behind us, it must be someone’s ringing tone.
We both turned to face two elderly men and a woman, probably Ugochukwu’s mother.
The funny thing was the man holding walking stick and wearing deem up on his eyes, with one long chewing stick stuck in his mouth.
Me: na your uncle be this? I point at the man
The man with deem up and chewing stick, spoke.
